For those who want to follow along with the North Coast Section as it posts brackets for the baseball and softball meetings, head over to the NCS website. Division VI is already up, and they’re pretty good at updating as they get done with the individual brackets. Remember, I’ll have a live chat to discuss the seeds today at 3 p.m.

Baseball and softball teams find out where they’re headed next week when the North Coast Section releases the brackets on Sunday, so I’ll be hosting a live chat from 3-4 p.m. to discuss the day’s events. So, join me Sunday here on the blog for some baseball and softball chatter.
Well, a few hours ago Queen of the Mountain tournament organizer John Vasquez was hopeful they’d get to play the rest of the tournament tomorrow. Now, it appears the fields will still be too wet to play, and the remainder of one of the best early-season softball tournaments in Northern California has been cancelled, effective tonight.

I’m getting to this a little late, but figured it was noteworthy nonetheless. Today is the Under Armour All-American softball game at Disney’s Wide World of Sports Complex in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. And, as she did last year, recent Deer Valley grad Emily Allard is participating. Allard is set to attend Northwestern in the fall.
I’ll post results from the game tomorrow.
